Regulatory Compliance – How LIMS Can Support the 10 Principles of GMP

Laboratory information management systems (LIMS) are used extensively in pharmaceutical laboratories to manage, track and report on samples, tests, test results and more. Laboratory testing can be involved at every step from raw material analysis through to the finished product. Since the pharmaceutical industry is highly regulated to ensure the safety of products for consumers, the use of LIMS must also conform to the requirements of the appropriate regulatory body. Simon Wood of Autoscribe Informatics explains the ten key principles of GMP and it is important to understand how a LIMS can satisfy each of these requirements.
